Over the past few months Florida A&M President James H. Ammons has taken a lot of proverbial hits, but now it is his car that is taking a beating.
Enel Asseille, a former Allied Health student, was barred from FAMU campus after being apprehended by the FAMU Police Department for criminal mischief for throwing rocks at a car that has been identified by FAMU PD Lt. Angela Kirkland as that of Ammons. It was not his personal vehicle but one provided by the university.
According to an arrest report Asseille was seen repeatedly throwing a brick at Ammons’ car by a FAMU employee. The damage was estimated at more than $1000.
Asseille was transported to the Leon County Jail and suspended from the university at that time. Subsequent incidents with the individual on or near FAMU campus lead to a trespassing warning being issued by the FAMU Department of Public Safety on Jan. 23.
Ammons released a statement about the police department’s quick response. “Our Police Department responded immediately when the incident occurred,” said Ammons. “Appropriate action was taken in the case through our Judicial Affairs Office. Unexpected incidents occur, but it is comforting to know that we have a police department that is responsive.”
